About the Exhibition

The author Rebecca Solnit once described blue as the color of the edges of the world; the mountains far away, the deep sea and the sky above us. The color of longing, of distance. Of what is not quite here. In the midst of the strangeness that has clouded the past year and a half, seeped into every corner of our lives and stained them, I felt I had arrived in this place of blueness. A fleeting moment where the world seemed suspended, and what was before and what was to come after was veiled and out of touch.   And feeling blue was neither just sadness, nor serene. It was the dirty muddy riverbank water, and dark thunderstorms filled with rain. Splashes of orange and the smell of green in spring. It was a thousand different hues.
